Web Stats indicate High Interest in E-Cat Report

A report on Sifferkoll.se, where the recent E-Cat report was first made available to the general public for downloading has reported some interesting statistics regarding the number of times that the report has been downloaded.

Between the time the report was first made availabel — around midday on Wednesday and 3 a.m. Sunday morning, Sifferkoll reports the report has been downloaded 49,259 times. And this is only from that web site. I took a look at the statistics for the copy of the report that I downloaded into Scribd, and embedded into E-Cat World, and so far the number of views is 28,524.

There are other places on the web where the report is available now, including its official home at Elforsk, and I am sure other sites as well.

From the traffic statistics I see for E-Cat World, it seems that sustained interest is higher than it has ever been since starting the site, and the interest is up all over the world. FYI, the top 10 countries for E-Cat World traffic over the last week are:

1. United States
2. Sweden
3. United Kingdom
4. Italy
5. Canada
6. Germany
7. Finland
8. Netherlands
9. Australia
10. Norway

    That is about the same top list over material discoverys per country in the periodic table. Just a coinsidence or are we looking at the top list of physics?

  • Sanjeev

    So it shattered all previous records I guess. Estimated 100k downloads and the news is still spreading.

  • Private Citizen

    downloaded 49,259 times, plus 28,524?

    While wonderful that anyone is getting the news, still 80K views would make that about equal to a 3rd string sleepy kitten video on YouTube or a re-run of Gilligan’s Island on a backwater cable channel.

      Demographies, my friend. Think again about the percentages of demographies.

      • Andrew

        Exactly. Who is looking at it is more important than how many.

  • Ged

    You did not just mention Pewdiepie. Perfect example of demographies and relative percentages. Sigh, now I must return to trying to forget that guy is so hot wheelsy popular

  • John Littlemist

    I am surprised that France is missing from the top 10 list.

  • Timar

    An E-Kitten?

  • NT

    I am surprised that China is missing from the list…

      If this test is to be trusted, it seems that http://www.e-catworld.com is blocked in China:

        Interesting and thanks for the test link John Littlemist. My own website which is mirroring many of these e-cat stories, according to your test link, is being accepted all over China. What could be the reason for this site of Frank’s being blocked?

          The page title “Following the LENR/Cold fusion revolution” might contain a blacklisted keyword, which in this case obviously would be: REVOLUTION!

          • NT

            I use this header on my website A new worldwide energy revolution has begun! Cold Fusion (LENR) now confirmed… must be something else?

        Rossi’s JoNP is accessible, though.

    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are so confident while the intelligent are full of doubt.
    – Bertrand Russell

    You will see that those who oppose Ecat most furiously are most confident that they know everything. The reaction of an intelligent but uninformed person is mostly like – well it looks cool, I don’t really know if it works, lets find out. Normally an intelligent person will not give a knee jerk response, he is always unsure of new things.

    It does not matter what kind of comments are being posted around the net. What matters is that a large number of smart people around the world read the report and see the facts for themselves. They may not may not be vocal about their views, but some of them will start experiments and we will see more and more people coming up with new discoveries in this new field of LENR.

      Excellent comment. Decades ago I said that anyone who feels secure is not paying attention. (:->) I think that it requires a certain amount of humility to know that you do not know. Humility means being more centered (NOT self-centered).

    • Donk970

      I was talking to my dad who’d been an engineer for fifty years about this and he commented that what bothered him is the complete lack of curiosity about anything new. My first reaction is to wonder what could be making it happen but the pathoskepts first reaction seems to be an instant shunning of new observations that don’t fit what they know. Not only do the skeptics shun this new development by they do so with an extreme religious fervor. It makes one think that Rossi should be ware of large crowds sporting lots of pitchforks and torches.

      • bachcole

        If, as I think/surmise, skeptopathology is the result of anxiety, then, if more scientists are dependent upon funding rather than puttering around in their own workshops like Ben Franklin, then there are going to be more people whose anxiety index is going to rise when their paradigm is threatened, thus more skeptopaths.

        And I like what your father said, a very curious lack of curiosity. Anxiety and worry would do that, deplete one’s mental energy and thus one’s curiosity.

          “I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

          ― Frank Herbert, Dune

  • artefact

    I think many are waiting for the report to get published somewhere.

  • I uploaded some new download stats to http://sifferkoll.se

    US: 49%, IT: 8%, SE: 7%, CA: 4% …

    • bachcole

      Dear Sifferkoll, I don’t know what all of your nation abbreviations mean. Also, it would be nice to see a comparision with something else on the Internet, like searches for the word “Ebola” or some download that many people are doing, something to give an indication of any skewing.

      • I believe the abbreviations are the internatial standad for whois database (domainnames) ie. it = italy, se=sweden, jp=japan, ca=canada, etc.

        Since I only made stats on the actual downloads of the report from my site there is not much else to see, I can see referers (the sites from where the report is) and the downloading ip-no.
